Sound Familiar?

Does any of this ring a bell with you?

Rocks thrown

Rocks on roof

Sound of walking or running across roof

Pebbles, pine cones, nuts tossed near people

Large rocks thrown into water near you

Terrible stench, an eye-watering, rotten, skunky smell

Wall pounded on

Red glowing eyes seen at night

Eye shine at night, high up

Taps on window pane, tapping

Scratching sound on outside walls, windows, or screens

Trees shaking, waving, without windy weather

Healthy trees pushed over, branches broken in good weather

Animal shadows moving quickly across curtains or window shades

Howls, screaming, calls, whoops, perhaps loud enough to vibrate your body

Sudden, intense feeling of being watched

Knocking sounds on wood, rocks clacking together

Dead animals found in odd places, arranged oddly

Scratches on vehicles

Doors ripped off hinges

Trailers or large equipment tipped over

Dogs and pets disappear or are found mutilated

Fake-sounding bird or animal calls

Way-too-loud animal sounds

Odd arrangements of sticks and branches, stacks, teepees, fences, bare trunks stacked up

Trees broken off at four foot or higher level

Tree trunks or branches twisted and splintered

Barefoot footprints of unusual size

Prints made by big bare feet

U-shaped dents in soil

Unidentifiable animal tracks, resembling cow or horse tracks, but not right for cow or horse

Smears on windows, walls, or vehicles

Outdoor sheds broken into, freezers opened and pilfered

Animal feed disappears too quickly

Missing articles found later in obvious spot

All of a fruit or vegetable crop goes missing overnight

Animals going crazy, running around

Animals jumpy or injured in the morning, scratches, handprints on hide

Dogs barking, dogs hiding, whimpering

Face in the window

Someone is growled at

Someone hears heavy, loud breathing

Child tells of seeing a monkey or ape or a bear walking

Hunter’s kill disappears without a trace–no drag marks, no blood trail, no tracks

Domestic or wild animals found with necks or backs twisted and guts removed, some innards gone, some laid aside

Door knobs rattled, door knocked on in the middle of the night

Sound of talking in  woods or outside at night when no one is there

Yes?  You might have sasquatches in the neighborhood.

Risky experiences

After reading many reports on the BFRO site and others, I have to conclude that most bigfoot seem uninterested in hurting humans.   Running away, hiding, and nonchalance are the most common reactions, based on my information.  But that is no guarantee of your safety.

Tree-shaking and felling and roaring are clear intimidation gestures.  Here is a personal favorite:  http://www.bfro.net/gdb/show_report.asp?id=45818 Charges may be bluff charges in the same vein.  These send a message of threat but are not harmful, per se.

There are also many reports in which a sasquatch chases a human–a Google search for BFRO report chased evoked + 9000 hits.   Of course, some of those reports are related to sasquatches chasing deer.

We usually agree that if a sasquatch wanted to catch you, they could, and so the degree of risk is unclear.  Thus, such reports are not as convincing or useful as they could be.

Some people have been “paced” by bigfoot–that is to say, followed at a very small distance, parallel to the person and at the same speed.  This may be an escorting-you-out-of-our-territory kind of move, or it may be for intimidation.  Pacing is not a chase, because they care caught up to you already, but pacing is all the more frightening for that.  Again, this does not actually hurt people.

They will throw things,  but usually they are aiming to alert you to their presence.

Destruction of property in the human’s absence is not uncommon, but puts nobody in actual danger.

Reports in which a human appears to be in great danger of being harmed or are harmed are rare.   Here are a few I found.
